Joe Gomez reveals his frustration at watching Liverpool's success this season

17 May 2019, 13:05

After suffering a leg fracture that put him out for months, Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has admitted that it hurt watching the club's success from the sidelines.

Gomez had a blistering start to the season as he partnered with Virgil van Dijk at the heart of defense. The England international, however, fractured his leg against Burnley on December 5. The 21-year-old was out for more than four months before making his comeback as a substitute in the 4-1 UEFA Champions League quarter-final win at Porto on April 17.

The former Charlton Athletic defender revealed that watching Liverpool's success from the sidelines was tough for him, "It's probably underestimated a bit how much it can affect us as footballers. Like it might just seem that you're injured and now you just watch the boys, but it hurts - especially (in) a year like this that was pretty historic.

"To watch a large majority of those games, having had a taste of it at the beginning was difficult to take. Obviously, it was nice to overcome it and get a bit of involvement at the end. We've just got to move on now and we've got a big game. There's a lot of ups and downs, but it's all a learning curve."
